Critical strike

Critical Strike refers to an effect that deals increased damage under specific circumstances. The most common form of critical strike occur on Basic Attack basic attacks, which trigger based on Critical strike chance icon critical strike chance, dealing a default of 200% damage. Some abilities can also critically strike.

Note that a critical strike is distinct from other damage modifiers since it has complimentary stats and effects. For example:

All tip data templates use the same parameter.

Retrieval of data items

{{data Critical strike|pst2|interrupts}}, using parameter selection template Template:Pst2, gives the parameter interrupts, etc.

For retrieval of more data items it is more efficient to prepare a template for that, to be used as follows:

{{data Critical strike|template name|..|..|..|..}}

so that this data template needs to be called only once.[1] The default template is Template:Tip data, producing this page.

The four parameters are optional, they are passed on to the prepared template as parameters 2-5.

A parameter being undefined or empty typically means the same, see below. {{data ..|pst2|..}} gives the empty string and the text "{{{..}}}", respectively. Therefore, an application checking the parameter has to check both. Checking whether a result is equal to e.g. the text "{{{popinc}}}" cannot be done directly with #ifeq in a template which itself has also a parameter with that name, because if that is defined, there would be a comparison with the value instead of the text itself. Instead, it can be checked whether the first character of the result is "{", e.g.: {{#ifeq:{{padleft:|1|{{data {{{continent}}}|pst2|popinc}}}}|{|..|..}}. Until here the documentation is automatically generated by Template:Tip data.
